The City of Atlanta encourages the use of urban gardens and has worked to educate residents on how to cultivate them. The reason is simple: resilient neighborhoods thrive. And that’s part of the foundation of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ One Atlanta vision.
The Historic Westside Gardens group has been teaching residents how to grow their own healthy food for years – using innovative ideas and unconventional methods to farm the urban landscape. Because they understand that the benefits are many; and Atlanta is a city that always finds a way to improve the lives of its people.
